    How good is PTS at benchmarking transparent filesystem compression? What kind of data is written to/read from disk when it does its thing? Text? Random? Multimedia? Straight zeroes? A mixture of all...

    Who? The ones defending or attacking Phoronix's policy of watermarking all images?

    Personally, I'm annoyed at watermarks, especially ones that hinder perception.

    I don't think that the fact that it is automatic makes it okay. Brings into question Phoronix's tendency to do that, actually. I mean, if they don't respect the copyright of others, how dare they...

    If you click on the embedded image, it clearly says Copyright Phoronix, all rights are reserved... Also, the huge watermark that incidetally hinders perception is also an infringement on copyright,...

    What's wrong with it supporting it? Besides irrational dislike for the technology?

    I don't think that has anything to do with the kernel. The fsck utility is part of btrfs-tools (or whatever the package name is).

    I didn't know that Intel celebrated Phoronix birthdays...

    Also, a link to the commit or some mailing list discussion would be appreciated.

    It IS breaking the API, albeit only a little. From the Qt 5 plans post:



    I'm thinking "for the majority of cases" implies there is a minority for which source compatibility WILL break.

    These are not regressions. Software regressions are bugs; these are simply unfortunate side-effects from using a new desktop environment, namely Unity.

    Interesting info otherwise, though. Thanks.

    Just think about it like there are only four games in the bundle. What does it matter that there is one that doesn't work for Linux? Is it going to detract from the value of the other four? Jeez. You...

    Hey, that was a cursory glance. I didn't do any in-depth analysis of git commits or anything. That seemed like a lot of effort :)

    All right, I was pretty curious too, so I made a small...

    Yes, I agree with that, somewhat. However, I can see where these developers are coming from. Comparing the volume of libav and ffmpeg lists, it is obvious that more active development is going on in...

    It gave ME the impression that mplayer2 or libav were somehow blamed for the whole episode, otherwise why mention forks at all?

    Of course, knowing Phoronix, one might deduce that those are simply...

    I think the implication is rather obvious.

    Of course the libav fork is somewhat questionable, because of all the drama around it, but calling it a "bad fork" outright is poor taste and poor journalism, IMHO. The situation is very difficult to...

    I don't think Wayland is part of the projects approved for GSoC 2011. Is this proposal going to be part of the X.org bunch?

    I'm wondering what's stopping DragonEgg from becoming an offical part of GCC (as an experimental, optional plug-in, of course). The performance differences seem to warrant it.

    There's an Arch AUR package, too.

    http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=46805

    I'm currently using it, and it works well with SMPlayer, and it does feel snappier.

    I get that impression, too. This makes those tests completely irrelevant.

    I always thought law didn't work backwards, except for special cases such as pardons for crimes no longer considered crimes. That is, you shouldn't take into account what laws should be in the...
